Baker & Taylor Celebrates University Presses
In honor of University Press Week (November 6-11), Baker & Taylor celebrates university presses for their significant accomplishments over the past year. We wish to congratulate our university-press partners for successfully fulfilling the American Association of University Press’ mission statement, which in part calls for its members to “fulfill their common commitments to scholarship, the academy, and society.” AAUP members have stepped up to the challenges of a transitional publishing environment by continuing to publish excellent trade and scholarly books, a wide range of titles that collectively have a broad appeal, garnering interest from both library and retail customers. Baker & Taylor is honored to have university presses as publishing partners and we look forward to continuing to support their publishing efforts in the future. Again, congratulations to the university presses on a successful year!
We are so pleased to be celebrating University Press Week with Baker & Taylor. Partners like B&T, and the bookstores and libraries they serve, are key supports to the work university presses do to publish vitally necessary knowledge and expertise. To be able to #LookItUP, we need everyone from the scholar to the person who finally puts a book or journal in a reader’s hands (or on their screen!)
--Peter Berkery, AAUP Executive Director
